Denver's Marshall: "This Is Our Division"

The Denver Broncos have a star in the making and his name is Brandon Marshall (and his nickname is 'Baby T.O.'). Marshall is a big physical player who has a little bit of Anquan Boldin and Terrell Owens in him. As a prospect in the 2006 NFL Draft, I really liked Marshall and was hoping the Chargers would pick him up. But when the fourth round came by and the Broncos were sitting on the clock, they decided to select Marshall as a guy who could hopefully one day emerge as Rod Smith's replacement as Denver's go-to guy.

Fast forward to today and Marshall is on pace to break 1000 yards receiving. To go along with his impressive play is a confidence (maybe a little brashness) that the AFC West is the Denver Broncos' to lose:

"This is our division," Marshall said. "It's always been our division. It's time for us to take it back. San Diego, Kansas City, they don't have the talent like us in the locker room. They have star players but can't get it done like us."

Even as a die-hard Chargers fan, Marshall's statement doesn't bother me all that much. I actually kinda like hearing a little bit of trash talk come from regional opponents. And its true that the Denver Broncos have historically dominated the division. They are the last team in the AFC West to actually win a Super Bowl. And if nothing else, Marshall's comments might provide the stumbling Chargers with some much needed bulletin board fodder...
